    Got this in an email to day

    A very eventful day around here... A once in many lifetimes experience!
    Mark saw this lil' feller run out in front of a car, thought it was a lost baby
    goat.Stopped to get it, and WOW. A real Albino Whitetail Deer. Just hours
    old, but doing fine. No Momma deer around and another car nearly hit it

    Well, he is the neatest thing any of us ever saw. And such a 'freak of
    nature', that only 1 in more than a million are even born. He took his
    bottle of food, followed us around the house, doing great. So, we called
    the Zoo & Fossil Rim, who were both interested, but we're going to send him to a Rehab farm. Maybe he will make it in captivity somewhere and be
    appreciated.So rare... Sure wanted to keep him tho. but, not the thing to do. And not LEGAL either ; But, here are a couple of pix to show ya. He was snow white,pink eyes, ears, nose and hooves. Kids called him POWDER. He was SO small. That is my shoe lying beside him... WOW..how cool is that??

    Pass this around, a lot of folks have never and will probably never see
    even another picture of an Albino deer fawn......

    Thank you kind sir,that is a neat picture.I have never seen an Albino fawn before.The only Albino I ever saw was when I was 12 years old over a corn field over at the old home place. Never will forget that.Sure was pretty. The one you have there is a real cutie. Thanks again.

    Seen a doe that was partially albino, was lucky enough to see her a few times on private property. Someone trespassed and shot her, had her mounted. She was pretty, had several fawns that carried the trait before she was taken.

    Cool pictures! A buddy of mine and his son saw an albino doe this past weekend in south Oklahoma while on a youth hunt. He told me that you can't shoot them here in Oklahoma without permission from the state first. He said he thought it had to do with respecting Native American culture.

    there's a bunch of the white deer around here I've never seen em but the ol lady and kids have seen em many times
    around here if they have any brown on em you can take it
    my buddy was telling me about a big 10 point albino buck he had seen in the woods he asked the conservation officer if it was legal to take it the officer said yes it's legal but you wont be to popular around here (public hunting grounds) that same day he had already dropped his wife off to hunt a stand well guess what his wife had shot that deer when he went to pick her up
    he had it mounted
